the distribution of pasteurella haemolytica serotypes among cattle, sheep, and goats in south africa and their association with diseases.over an 8-year period (september 1986 to march 1994), a total of 497 organ specimens from sheep and goats and 96 from cattle, were received for their isolation of pasteurella haemolytica. they were collected in seven geographical areas in south africa (as it existed before the april 1994 elections). these areas include the eastern cape, transvaal (new name: gauteng), nambia, orange free state (new name: free state), natal (new name: kwazulu-natal), western cape and the northern cape. this invest ...19958668319
an overview of the eradication of brucella melitensis from kwazulu-natal.brucella melitensis is a gram-negative bacterium whose primary hosts are goats and sheep. like the other brucelia spp., with the exception of brucella ovis, it is not particularly host specific as it is pathogenic for a variety of other mammal species including humans. in humans the disease caused by it is rated as one of the most important zoonoses. three outbreaks have been recorded in goats and sheep in south africa; the first outbreak occurred in sheep in 1965 in the mpumalanga and northern ...200212233997
amphistome infection of goats farmed under resource-poor conditions in south africa.from december 1998 to april 2000, a longitudinal study was conducted of the pooled trematode faecal egg counts of samples collected from goats of resource-poor farmers at rust de winter, gauteng province, impendle, kwazulu-natal province, and kraaipan, north-west province, south africa. the amphistome faecal egg counts followed a seasonal pattem, with an increase in the counts during the warmer months of the year (october to march). this is the first work concerning the seasonal cycling of amphi ...200212625386
relative economic benefits of tactical anthelmintic treatment and urea-molasses block supplementation of boer goats raised under extensive grazing conditions at onderstepoort, pretoria, south africa.the potential economic benefits of combining tactical anthelmintic treatment for gastrointestinal nematodes and nutritional supplementation with urea-molasses blocks were examined in boer goats raised under extensive grazing conditions in the summer rainfall area of south africa. eight groups of nine goats were monitored over a 12-month period from 1 october 2002 to 9 october 2003. ad libitum nutritional supplementation with urea-molasses blocks was provided when the goats were housed at night, ...200819040138
incidence of haemonchus spp. and effect on haematocrit and eye colour in goats farmed under resource-poor conditions in south africa.the diversity and predominance of nematode genera in goats of resource-poor farmers at rust de winter, gauteng province, impendle, kwazulu-natal province, and kraaipan, north-west province, south africa, was determined by means of a longitudinal study of the nematode faecal egg counts (fecs) and differential third-stage nematode larvae. the animals were bled for haematocrit determination and scored for pallor of ocular mucous membranes using the famacha( copyright) method, an assay for clinical ...200211751007
parasites of comestic and wild animals in south africa. ii. oestrus ovis in goats.during a period of 13 months, 130 goats' heads, obtained form the johannesburg municipal abattoir, were examined for infestation with oestrus ovis. investation was present in 73,8% of the heads and the mean burden comprised 4,4 larvae. such a small nuber of larvae were present that no clear seasonal incidence pattern could be determined. pupal periods could be as long as approximately 60 days for flies hatching during october and may and as short as approximately 24 days for those hatching from ...1977614525
effect of nematode burden as assessed by means of faecal egg counts on body condition in goats farmed under resource-poor conditions in south africa.a longitudinal study was conducted of the nematode faecal egg counts (fecs) and body condition scores (bcss) of goats of resource-poor farmers at rust de winter, gauteng province, impendle, kwazulu-natal province, and kraaipan, north-west province, south africa. periods of higher fecs occurred from december/january to march/april at rust de winter and at impendle and from january to march at kraaipan. seasonal variations in body condition were evident in the goats at impendle with the animals sh ...200212237143
phage types of salmonella enterica serovar enteritidis isolated in south africa from 1991-1995.a total of 615 strains of salmonella enterica serovar enteritidis (se), received from 1991-1995 at the onderstepoort veterinary institute (ovi), were phage typed. most se isolates (54,7%) originated from poultry followed by humans (28,5 %) and poultry eggs (9,6 %). phage type 34 was the most prevalent (40,5 %) of all isolates, followed by phage type 4 (33,8 %). other phage types identified were 1, lb, 4a, 7, 7a, 9a, 14, 24, 24var and 35 (in total 2,4% of isolates). most isolates of se were recei ...200011028749
